Then we’ll check out some new releases. Thankfully it wasn’t as full of bottles as it was yesterday. After this it’s sales time. Let’s get to work!

Review and mini view

Princess Peach: Showtime! ($59.99)

Princess Peach: Showtime! It was developed by Good-Feel, and since it’s such a Good-Feel game, I think the developers could probably guess it even if they weren’t told in advance. The Hyogo-based company, founded by many former Konami employees, has worked with Nintendo on and off since its founding in 2005. During that time, we have developed several games featuring Nintendo characters. Wario Land Shake It!, Kirby’s Epic Wool, Yoshi’s Wool Worldand yoshi craft world. Like those games Princess Peach: Showtime! It’s a fairly sedate game, relatively easy to get to the end, but packed with enough collectibles to keep you replaying stages if you’re looking for completion.

Peach goes to the theater to see a show like everyone else, but becomes trapped in the theater because Sour Grapes decides to crash the scene. To save her predicament, she must venture into each play and fight back against the bad guys involved. She adopts a special persona with each playthrough. The basic gameplay here is a tried and true platform, but you’ll often be asked to do a lot of other things. Maybe you need to decorate a cake or do a figure skating routine to the music. You never know what’s going to happen next, and that’s one of the strengths of this game.

Generally speaking, it’s all about fun in a game. It ends a bit quickly if you rush through it, but I don’t think it’s too far from the ideal length given the ideas it contains. Collecting all the super classes and finding all the hidden secrets in each stage is a bigger task, sometimes requiring careful exploration, and requires considerable skill in mini-games in some cases. While I found this a satisfying reason to replay levels, it’s a bit annoying not to be able to skip cutscenes when playing repeatedly.

As for the presentation, Princess Peach: Showtime! It looks and sounds pretty good. It’s not the smoothest or prettiest game on the console, but it’s vibrant and runs well enough. Peach’s various costumes are all very sharp, and the original characters created for the game are also attractive. The literal setting, set in a theater, gives the game a unique personality, and the boss battles and stage settings are also impactful. Peach is a fun heroine and it’s cool to see so many new sides to her.

Princess Peach: Showtime! While it can sometimes feel too cluttered on its own, the variety of gameplay and the usual Good-Feel relaxing atmosphere make this a great game to unwind with for a weekend or two. It has become. If you’re not interested in replaying stages to find hidden goodies, this might be a bit too short and breezy for you. This game also very much needs the option to skip long cutscenes when returning to a previously completed playthrough. Overall, this is a solid entry for gaming’s most famous princess, easily surpassing her Nintendo and DS star debuts. We hope this is just the beginning of her adventure.

SwitchArcade Score: 4/5

Crypto Stalker ($6.99)

With a game as affordable as this one, you can’t be too fussy about getting all the little details right.and crypto stalker Actually, there aren’t that many serious flaws other than probably being too much enthusiastic about respect for Castlevania Dracula. The basic gameplay is fun, the different levels are themed, the boss fights are relatively well done, and the presentation is more or less on purpose. You’ll also get an additional version of the game modeled after the terrifying original Game Boy. Castlevania Dracula adventure.

Even if you can guess how it happened, there’s one thing you shouldn’t miss. This is a challenging side-scrolling platformer that requires fairly precise timing, especially when it comes to alternating jumps and attacks. Unfortunately, I decided to map the controls the opposite way to the convention, assigning jump to B and attack to A. Castlevania Dracula (or NES) This is an incredibly tricky situation because you have built up muscle memory. You can’t even remap it in-game, so if you want to change it you’ll have to use the system-level remap feature. I think what happened here is that on the PC it was mapped according to the normal layout, but on the Switch controller the positions of B and A were reversed, so it ended up staying this way.

crypto stalker We provide decent and cheap products. Castlevania Dracula-Like a thrill. By fighting your way through tons of stages and enjoying some interesting additional modes, you’ll get solid value for your money from the game. Sadly, the lack of in-game button mapping and the default layout for jump and attack being reversed make this game a bit of a nuisance for those who have invested decades in normal button assignments. can be very difficult. We hope that publishers see fit to update this by adding an option to reassign controls.

SwitchArcade Score: 3/5

New work

Farming Simulator Kids ($29.99)

Incorporating the concept of farming simulator This is about making it relatable for children. This presentation is aimed directly at the younger generation, and with more than 10 crops to plant and harvest, several locations to explore, and a variety of activities, this could be right on the mark. I don’t know. Kids will also love that this game includes tools and vehicles that are fully licensed from John Deere.

South Park: Snow Day! ($29.99)

At one point I remembered that south park They said something about not wanting to do anything worse. south park games, that’s why they worked more hands-on cane of truth.Well…I guess it’s good while this lasts, because this definitely sucks south park game. This buggy, ill-conceived, multiplayer action game isn’t worth $30, it’s not worth putting 10 GB of space on your SD card, and it’s certainly not worth your time. A shameful flare-up of hard-earned goodwill.

Shockman Collection Vol. 1 ($10.99)

This is technically just a bundle of two previously released reissues. shockman From Lata Rika Games. I don’t know why it’s not a bundle of these two existing apps, but I don’t think it matters that much. If you want to do that, this is a cheaper way to get both games.
